Porto’s Jody Adams. Tiger Mama’s Tiffani Faison. Menton’s Barbara Lynch. These Boston chefs have paved the way for women in the restaurant industry, and they’ll discuss their journeys at the Boston Public Market on Monday, April 3.
The market hosts a “Farm to Fork to Film” event to preview an unreleased trailer for the feature-length documentary “A Fine Line” by debut filmmaker Joanna James, exploring the challenges of women working in the restaurant industry.
